    So we have just been introduced to the iPad in January (which carries iPhone OS 3.2). Do you think that we will see the introduction and preview of iPhone OS 4.0 in March (as has been the case the last 2 years).

    I really hope we do, I am interested to see what the future of my iPhone is.

    Yep, since 2.0 they've done an event to announce the new OS in March and seed it to developers with the hardware being revealed at an event in June. It's only a couple years of data but it seems highly likely for Apple to continue following that pattern.

    Surely as expected they will preview 4.0 in March. Along with the event, there will be iPad talk or about sales (depending on the date of the Event).

    Apple usually just announces events about a week or less, so don't worry about there not being an event - its almost necessary to ensure hype and to inform devs.

    The moment of truth for me. If 4.0 is worth it, I'll stick around on horrible AT&T instead of jumping on an Android-powered Verizon phone.

    I guess I'm not real sure what additional features I'd like to see in iPhone OS 4.0 except possibly multi-tasking. It would be nice to listen to Pandora in the background while browsing the web. But other than that I'm not real sure what I'd want. I'm in line to get an upgrade in September and will more than likely get the latest and greatest then. For the iPhone 4.0 itself, I would like to see something smaller and thinner (especially if I get an iPad, which I probably will).

    I really hope not. The current iPhone is the perfect size (my opinion, of course) and feels great in my hand. Any thinner would be uncomfortable.

    I'm truly curious about OS 4.0. I'm wondering if they plan to overhaul it or tweak it. While they keep the black background with the grid of apps on it? Will they include the ability for widgets? Smaller app icons? Custom wallpaper for the springboard?

    I realllllllly want to know the answer to questions like that.

    Can you take a pic of it by any chance? I'd love to see how that looks. I tried to youtube it and saw some vids of people using Shrink. Looks great. Such a small thing can make such a big difference.

    And if the screen was better it would be even more epic.

    This is almost what I have. I dropped the icon names and the page dots and my dock is a little different.

    Which theme are you using? I like yours better.
